[movies]What's the future of food production?
John Elkington assesses future trends in food production and the food sector. He looks at three relatively new food types: organic food, functional food and genetically modified food (or GM food). He suggests that genetically modified foods may have to play more of a part in global food production as population growth continues.

[movies]What's wrong with industrial agriculture?
Eric Schlosser says that food production is centralised and heavily industrialised, run by big corporations and agribusiness. It is bad for the environment, livestock and consumers. Just as the US energy policy is not sustainable, neither is food policy. We need new food industry regulation from the US and UK governments.

[movies]How can we have a fair global agricultural system?
Mohau Pheko argues that we need a fair global agricultural system. Farm subsidies favour multinational corporations and the rich at the expense of small-scale farmers. A small number of multinational agribusinesses such as Cargill and Monsanto have huge power over global food production. Food production, food prices and food security are political issues.

[texts]Energy and economic analysis of total energy systems for residential and commercial buildings - Maag, W. L.
Energy and economic analyses were performed for an on-site power-plant with waste heat recovery. The results show that for any specific application there is a characteristic power conversion efficiency that minimizes fuel consumption, and that efficiencies greater than this do not significantly improve fuel consumption. This type of powerplant appears to be a reasonably attractive investment if higher fuel costs continue.

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory has identified the need for a compliant wheel for a miniature martian rover vehicle. This wheel must meet requirements of minimum mass, linear radial deflection, and reliability in cryogenic conditions over a five year lifespan. Additionally, axial and tangential deflections must be no more than 10 percent of the radial value. The team designed a wheel by use of finite element and dimensionless parameter analysis...

Various mechanisms for driving double layers in plasmas are briefly described, including applied potential drops, currents, contact potentials, and plasma expansions. Some dynamical features of the double layers are discussed. These features, as seen in simulations, laboratory experiments, and theory, indicate that double layers and the currents through them undergo slow oscillations which are determined by the ion transit time across an effective length of the system in which double layers form...
